Celebrating the best thing to happen to a Bass guitar.


On this date (February 10) in 1962 Cliff Burton was born in in Castro Valley California. He would grow up to become the bass guitarist for heavy metal icons Metallica. The three albums that he performed on with the band are perhaps some of the most prolific in the genre and all three have stood the test of time.

So today crank up “Kill ‘Em All“, “Ride the Lightning” and my personal favorite “Master of Puppets” and take a moment to celebrate the memory of this young man whose life was taken far too soon.
